This PROTEST takes place in Denver where the Capitol building is located.

On Friday August 2nd at 11:30am, We will be gathering together on the West Steps of the Colorado State Capitol to ask Congress to step in and intercede with the improper BLM management of the captive wild horses and burros under federal protection. They are currently refusing to give the captive horses any shelter from the heat, which is currently reaching temps of 164 degrees. Mares and foals are dying. We will also be addressing the issue of the impending horse slaughter for food.

Please come out and show your support for the American Horse who built this country and who are the very symbols of the West.

Make a great poster and sign to wave, but do not use sticks to hold the posters. Relevant props are welcome too.

Ask your friends and family to attend with you,  the more support the better.

Let's show Congress and the BLM that we care about our American Heritage and the iconic symbol of the West, the Horse.

This will be a peaceful rally and we will be handing out educational materials to the public.

Wear cool clothing (it will be hot that day), bring water, sunscreen, and a hat if you need one.

See you there. For the Horses!

    Thank you everyone who attended and thanks to Ann S and Peter S for all their great publishing support. It was a great opportunity to educate the public on this very important and volatile issue. Appreciate you coming all the way from the Springs. See you next time, as we will be doing this again soon :)

    Tomorrow, Friday is the demonstration. We look forward to having you all there at the Capitol to speak up for the Horses. Bring your poster/sign, sunscreen, water and a hat and/or umbrella. See you at the west steps at 11:30am. Be there! For the Horses! If you wish to speak/address the rally attendees, please let me know. *send me an email.

    note: the driveway between the steps and the lawn must remain open to automobile traffic, please remember that when you arrive. Also, parking is limited (it's downtown after all,) so get there a little early to find parking and bring change for the meters. 4 quarters gets you an hour parking. No parking on Lincoln or Colfax near the capitol. Look for some parking on Sherman (both sides of capitol). and on Colfax east of capitol past Grant. You might want to carpool!

    Folks, this is exciting. We will be joining the Denver AAN folks to make this a great rally! Carpooling would be a great idea, as parking in Downtown can be a bit challenging. Bring your still cameras and video camera to record some memories. :-)
